    Lucid Time!

    Dreams from some 2 year old draft entries I never published.

    From Mid-May 2017. I have no idea why I never actually published these.

    I am in my 12th grade math classroom, being taught by my art history professor. We are taking an exam. I am nearing the end; I am reading the questions and I recall them going as follows.

    Who Discovered Art History?
    a) Jonny Depp
    b) Bob Ross
    c) Peter Parker
    d) Captain Olimar

    Who Discovered the person that discovered art history?
    a) Jonny Depp
    b) Bill Watterson
    c) Scaramouche
    d) The Tumblr Community

    In what year did Mt Vesuvius erupt disrupting art history?
    a) 2006
    b) 6
    c) 16
    d) -1

    For one of the questions I have to draw a comic strip and am given two whole pages to do so. I remember the comic ends with a picture of a wolf with a robot leg chasing a chicken with sunglasses and an army jacket and the words "Benny Hill Music Plays" Written on the background.

    I go to hand in my exam but my professor says she thinks I was cheating, saying that I had my notes from the midterm on my desk. I remind her that the exams are not cumulative. She says she will let me off the hook for cheating only if I come over and help her file her taxes.

    The dream scene shifts. I am on a high hill above a seaside town. By the sea is a point and a bay with a large old fortress on it. (Reminding me greatly of a miniature version of old San Juan).


    "Okay now I know for sure that I am dreaming, I do not remember waking up. Time to get lucid!" I say to myself. I do a nose pinch RC and become lucid. But the dream is not very clear at all and I can feel it trying to fade away. "Time to lay down the dream stabilization" I say to myself as the scene distorts and I am now walking along the side of the castle near the sea. I rub my hands together.

    "Semper Stabelem". The white shockwave spreads out as usual and increases the clarity but not by much.

    I then tried pinching my index fingers and thumbs from both hands together and made a tiny window, which I then tried to look through. As I did I said "More Details!". Slowly the details on the dream became clearer. I could better make out the texture of the stone bricks of the individual droplets of crashing waves on the sea. I then decided to focus on sounds. I cupped my hands around my ears and said "More Sounds". The crashing of the waves and chirping of birds became audible.

    The dream was really vivid now. Looks like my dream stabilization ideas were not half bad. I began walking along the boardwalk until I came to a gap where big waves were crashing in. I figured I could just boost across. I ran and jumped and tried to fly but my feet were still dangling in the water. Then a big wave hit me in the side and I crashed against some rocks and started getting pulled out to sea. I knew I was getting into another one of those big waves drowning dreams and figured I just needed to stay calm. I decided to face away from the waves and not pay attention to them. The first one passed over me and I barely felt it. The second one began to encroach around me but I never went underwater. I felt as though I were being pulled backwards in a narrow tunnel of water. I felt confident in that moment thinking that maybe I had finally gotten these waves to go around me but at that moment the tunnel of water collapsed and I was underwater in a void with no sense of direction. I tried looking to what I thought was 'Up' and saw the saturn planet in the sky. I thought that it was making tides and that was the reason this was always happening.

    I hesitantly took in a deep breath despite being underwater and after a few minutes found I was floating in space. I saw a planet with shifting continents and islands. A giant white fist of energy punched it and made a big crater that filled with ocean. Someone pointed to the two continents and said that one of them was a desert. I pulled backwards and saw the saturn planet with its system of moons. There were six of them. The first; ocean covered with a few small islands. The second an ice moon with a narrow equator of seas. The third; where I was; mostly ocean with two large continents and the big crater rim. The fourth was almost entirely land, dotted with small seas and the fifth looked brown with only a few patches of green. There were two additional moons, a large purple one and a small black one out past that.

    "The third green moon of [planet's name I forgot], revel in the glory of what the galactic engineers can create." (In where 'Green Moon' is a term for a habitable moon)

    I continued to pull back and saw a very crowded solar system with about two dozen planets, many of which had their own moons, and the twin suns. I continue pulling back out of the solar system out to see a galaxy and continued pulling back until I was flying backwards through galaxies. I turned myself around (it taking a lot of effort) and saw what I was under the assumption was the milky way coming at me. I flew into the solar system and when I hit earth, I woke up.

    I was at a rave. Infected Mushroom is on stage but we're also supposed to be seeing Shpongle and some other group that I know was a group that was original to the dream and not one that actually exists in waking life. They are playing part of the track Dancing with Kadafi but with a more modernized sound to it for a bit but then go into this portion that sounds more breakbeat and then onto what I think was a led Zepplin song.

    Manei and S were there. The song stopped and Amit said that it would be a ten minute intermission. I turned to Manei and S and said "That means there will be another hour and a half set, so let's stay here even if that means we'll be up until one in the morning." S said he was bored and that he would take the car home by himself and I didn't care in my semi lucid state. Amit then started taking questions from the audience and some girl in goth makeup and a black tank top raised her hand and asked something about the drums. This ended in her going onto stage attempting to demonstrate something and playing a really poor drum solo.

    Erez said that it was good but just needed a few refinements, but the girl was really embarrassed and started crying causing her makeup to bleed. I got bored and we walked back into the front room of the music theatre we were in. They were selling merchandise and food out of a store that was like a small convenience store. Manei wanted to buy something but I told her not to because it would cost too much.

    I had a false awakening. My mom explained to me about how she read one of those creepypastas about how to preform a ritual. She said that his one allowed you to summon the grim reaper and you had a small chance to learn about the cause or the date of your death, and an even more slim chance to alter the date and cause of death by greeting the grim reaper as a friend.

    The ritual was easy. You wake up at midnight and light a candle and stare into it repeating a mantra about death. You have to feel for how many times you think is right to repeat your mantra and not lose track. Then you blow out the candle and get into bed and the grim reaper should walk into your room. I told my mom she was full of bologna and told her I would prove it to her by trying the ritual.

    I did. I got into bed and heard something outside the door and saw this big black boar walk into my room. It was so large that it broke the doorframe as it squeezed its belly through. It had a car engine or some type of machinery very similar to one imbedded into its body and there were mechanical cylinders moving in and out of metal-framed holes along its spine and belching clouds of black toxic smoke. It emanated fear as some people describe monsters and nightmares but I could tell that it was not the grim reaper. The ritual advised that if something other than the grim reaper is summoned, you should keep a religious artifact handy to banish it. I was semi lucid to the point where I recognized it was not a demon, but a nightmare. I reached under my covers and felt around until I found a dreamcatcher and held it up to the boar like a crucifix. It made a squealing sound and turned and ran out of my room.

    I pondered how I would explain the damaged door frame to my parents and lost the dream.

    Manei was trapped in an underground compound and working to escape. The situation was something like that of a video game and it required that she spend days navigating labyrinthine underground passages making her way towards the surface and outrunning her captors. In the dream she is wearing an indiana jones costume, and using my variation of my bow.

    At one point she enters a portion of the passages that looks like my house. I am able to alert her that an enemy is approaching and she shoots him in the knee with an arrow to keep him from moving.

    I am in my Art History professor's office to talk about my grades. I see that I have gotten an 83% on my exam and realize I don't have to.

    I am involved in an absolutely massive space battle taking place above a cratered planet. The scene seems somewhat reminiscent of the first scene from Revenge of the Sith. I am flying alongside two other dream characters in small fighters. We weave our way through the battle, but our squad gets shot at by a dagger-shaped enemy warship and of the person on my left gets shot down.

    The scene ends with us landing in the hangar of the enemy flagship and the dream scene changes to a farm field. Some enemy troops still exist even though the hangar scene is phasing out. The other person who was in my squad who was still alive gets out; he is the Scotsman from Samurai Jack. He used his machinegun leg to kill the guards and the scene completed its transition to a farm.

    I asked him how he came to exist in the real world and he said that he was actually just the voice actor of the character; but that wasn't what I was expecting to hear. I was more curious as to how a 2D animated character became superimposed on a realistic 3D world. He turned sideways and was paper thin and I thought it was funny.

    He then said something about "that damn rabbit" and I turned to see a trap he had set up on the farm with an old rifle pointing at a rabbit eating some crops in the field. He said that he thought the trap had not worked because the gun was too old but I suggested that it might be because he left the trap out in the rain and the gunpowder got wet.

      Well, I'd point out the obvious Skyrim meme, but it's worn enough as it is.
